Two heads are better than one
Once again scientists look at nude kids to see how they tick, here we explore a set of twins, as they grow up, to see how they are similar and how they are different. It is quite interesting at the motor skills and interpersonal skills they both have, and how different they actually are. Just a tad boring though, no idea why they couldnt have used sound instead of cards.
